Our Assessment: This is a Winchester 9422, based, of course, on the company’s tried and true Model 94 Lever Action carbine. The 9422 is chambered for .22 S-L-LR rimfire cartridges, making for a fun little plinker. The action has to be felt to understand, with a flick of the wrist, you’ve already got another round chambered. With its 16.5” barrel, this is a quick handling plinker that will not wear you down at just 5.75 pounds. This 9422 is in Excellent condition, showing little sign of use, if any. This would be a great rifle for taking care of all kinds of varmint as well as being a nice piece to add to a Winchester collection. Please see our pictures and good luck!
